The vast majority of Americans believe racism is wrong, yet the evidence showing that race often determines how people are treated is overwhelming.
We here at Perception Institute are dedicated to solving this conundrum, and now we are ready to share with you the next phase of our work, The Science of Equality Volume 1: Addressing Implicit Bias, Racial Anxiety, and Stereotype Threat in Education and Health Care.
Co-authored by our Director of Research, Rachel D. Godsil, our Research Advisors Philip Atiba Goff, Linda Tropp and john a. powell, this report is the first-of-its-kind. Synthesizing hundreds of studies, The Science of Equality details how unconscious phenomena in our minds–implicit bias, racial anxiety, and stereotype threat–impact our education and health care systems, while offering empirical, research-driven solutions to overcome their effects.
Discrimination is real, but racial difference does not have to end in tragedy. By bringing a fuller understanding of the mind to bear on the problems of today, we can come together to create a new way forward.
